Nicky Nook Charity Walk
JOIN US ON OUR FAMILY FRIENDLY CHARITY WALK ON SUNDAY 19TH MARCH 2017 IN THE BEAUTIFUL BOWLAND FELLS - BETWEEN PRESTON AND LANCASTER
Nicky Nook with its cheeky name this delightful fell overlooking the M6 at Scorton has been a popular viewpoint for generations of Sunday
strollers from Preston, Lancaster and Blackpool. Though not particularly high at 215m, its location, between the Bowland Fells and the wide expanse of the Fylde, makes it a superb platform reached with comparatively little effort. Add to this lovely Grizedale and you have all the ingredients of a most satisfying walk.
The walk has been organised with Eldon Primary School in Preston and other walkers are welcome. Other Schools and clubs who would like to bring a group would be welcome. Walkers must be fit enough to walk for at least 2 hours.

Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge
COME AND JOIN US ON OUR ANNUAL YORKSHIRE THREE PEAKS CHARITY CHALLENGE AROUND THE STUNNING NORTH YORKSHIRE COUNTRYSIDE ON SATURDAY 8TH JULY 2017.
CHALLENGE YOURSELF, MEET NEW PEOPLE AND SUPPORT OUR CHARITY.
A 25 mile circular challenge walk, the Three Peaks of Yorkshire will start and finish at Horton-in-Ribblesdale, visiting the three highest peaks in Yorkshire - Pen-y-ghent (691m), Whernside (728m), and Ingleborough (723m) - in that order. The total distance is just less than 25 miles.
Although walkers will often not be too far from civilisation, this long walk is still demanding. Runners will be invited to start with the walkers and make their own pace. The total climb is some 5,200 feet, and the footpaths can be very wet and boggy in some places, rugged and rocky in others. Some sections are on fast country roads.
